Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

Much has happened to Gabrielle Reece since her 1997 bestseller Big Girl in the Middle. She's still gorgeous, still 6'3", and a dominant force on and off the beach, but in the last fifteen years, she's settled down with world-class surfer Laird Hamilton and raised three stunning blonde girls. Her life might seem like a fairy tale from afar, but four years after her picture-perfect Hawaiian marriage to Laird, Gabrielle filed for divorce. In the end, the couple worked it out, but My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper tells the unvarnished and often hilarious tale of the turbulent ups and downs that beset every wife and mother—even the women like Gabrielle who seem to have it all. Reece writes with wicked humor and down-to-earth wit about how she handles the sometimes mind-numbing details of domestic life, and she turns the notion that women can "have it all" on its head. As Gabby dismantles the notion of happily ever after, she gives readers plenty of concrete takeaways about how to deal. She underscores the notion that you have to make yourself happy before you can make anyone else happy. My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper is an irresistible, hilarious, and helpful portrait of the humor, grace, and humility it really takes to stay sane given the challenges of being a modern wife and mother.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I read My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper in one sitting and loved every second of it. It’s blunt, honest, hilarious, and inspiring. Everyone who is married—or thinking about getting married—should read this.” Courteney Cox
“Gabby has huge feet. If this book will get her to stop asking me to exercise with her, I’m all for it.” Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Cheers for Gabrielle Reece, an athlete, woman, wife, and mother who dares to live big, risk big, fall flat on her face, and, with the brilliant Karen Karbo, write with humor and grace about it. We love her, and this book, even more for her shortcomings than for her triumphs. Reece is truly a heroine for our times.” Pamela Redmond Satran, New York Times bestselling author
“An exuberant, right-on, and humorous hand-holder to confronting the crises, celebrating the victories, and—after a separation—achieving the middle ground in her marriage to world-famous big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton.” Elle
“A really good read.” Fitness
